Orix: Shunta Goto to be registerd as Shunta

The Orix Buffaloes announced that their 2010 first round draft pick, Shunta Goto, will be registered as Shunta (駿太) next season.

The Buffaloes decided to go along with Shunta for two reasons: one, because Shunta's last name is the same as Mitsutaka Goto; and two, because the kanji for shun (駿) is also used in the word shunsoku (駿足), which literally means fast legs.
